In 2012, having been lost for over 500 years, the remains of King Richard III were discovered beneath a carpark in Leicester.

The search had been orchestrated by an amateur historian, Philippa Langley, whose unrelenting research had been met with incomprehension by her friends and family and with scepticism by experts and academics.

The Lost King is the life-affirming true story of a woman who refused to be ignored and who took on the country’s most eminent historians, forcing them to think again about one of the most controversial kings in England’s history.

Directed by Stephen Frears and starring: Sally Hawkins, Steve Coogan

“I’m a sucker for a genuinely engaging underdog story and such is the case with The Lost King.”

“With composer Alexandre Desplat’s score adding appropriate notes of intrigue and humour, Frears and his collaborators… turn Philippa’s fascinating, stranger-than-fiction quest into a rousing, feel good film. This movie about a search for the 500-year-old tomb of a cursed king may not have the excitement of Indiana Jones, but it is a fantastic story which had to be told.”

“But it’s also about a women finding the strength, in both mind and body, to stand up for herself and her work, and that’s where the film excels in its storytelling.”
